First things first... Let me introduce myself
My name is Ellie, and I joined eBottles in January of 2012. Like most of you, I’m using products that come in bottles on a daily basis. From drinks to foods to cosmetics – really, if you think about it – almost everything we consume comes in some sort of a bottle or jar. We just don’t care to notice because we’re so focused on getting to what’s inside the bottle instead.
So today, I’m starting my mission to change that.
I’ll provide you with a little more in-depth knowledge on why certain things come packaged a certain way. We’ll take a look at glass, aluminum and different kinds of plastics. We’ll also take a closer look at the various elements of a bottle, including its neck, its cap and its seal…
And, last but not least, we’ll also discuss new ideas and lots of fun ways to use these bottles.
Let’s get started with the very basics. Did you know that a plastic bottle isn’t just a plastic bottle?
In fact, there are many different kinds of plastics, and different reasons why certain plastic materials (or resins) have certain uses. Most of them have names that we can’t pronounce. Therefore, let’s stick with their abbreviated names!
While HDPE bottles provide good protection at below freezing temperatures, they cannot be used with products filled at over 160° F (71° C) or products requiring a hermetic (or vacuum) seal.
Until next time,
